How to deal with mold?
Mold is a type of fungus. Typically, it presents itself like spots developed on the surfaces of dead organic matter. The reproduction of fungi occurs through spores, which are invisible to the naked eye. When the spores are deposited on a surface, if the conditions are favorable, there is a development of mold. The entry of fungi in internal environments may occur through doors, windows, refrigerator equipments and previously contaminated materials.
Effects of mold installation in libraries:
The fungi feed themselves of the substrate of the material where they settle, in this case, the files.
Usually, the first effect is the production of spots. With time, there is the weakening of the fibers that are present in paper, leather, fabrics or films.
The cellulose found in documents also serves as a nutrient for mold.
Added to these, there are other factors that contribute to this situation, such as bad ventilation, inadequate lighting and the accumulation of dust.
Mold spores can be found in several places, since the indoor air is never free of them, even after an intensive cleaning. The great difference in Airfree® is the wide range of efficiency tests conducted in real environments, such as libraries, by independent laboratories (ISO 17025 norm).
Institutions in several countries have already tested the device quality in libraries. Tests
AIRFREE® air purifiers are up to 99% efficient by destroying mold spores in the air, bacteria, viruses, ozone, allergens from dust and dust mites and other air pollutants, therefore representing a great ally in improving allergy sufferers’ quality of life.
How does it work?
It drastically reduces air allergens by incinerating microorganisms.
As a result, contaminated air is dragged through the Airfree® ceramic centre and destroyed at high temperatures.
This air purifying cycle is silent, requires no maintenance and is ensured by numerous tests.
Efficient - Tested and approved in real environments (without simulations) at the world’s best institutes.
Airfree® destroys any microorganism that passes through the ceramic steriliser regardless of its dangerousness or size.
Silent – Absolutely no noise
Exclusive - Internationally patented technology and Airfree® exclusive, the only one that also reduces ozone concentration.
Economic - No costs with replacement of parts nor significant power costs because Airfree® has a consumption of only 48 W per hour.
Convenient - switch the device on and don't worry about it, since it doesn't require maintenance nor cleaning
1. Are there any side effects?
No. Airfree’s new technology uses heat to purify the air. No side effects, no emissions, NO IONS, nor new particles are generated. Airfree® should be used in all homes and offices, quietly, constantly, and efficiently purifying the air.
2. Does Airfree eliminate bacteria and viruses?
Yes. Unlike the air filters in the market Airfree® is more efficient with the smallest microorganisms as they are easily carried by Airfree’s airflow into its heated ceramic core.
3. How does Airfree destroy dust mites?
Mould reduction in the environment causes reduction in the mould dependant dust mite population. Airfree also destroys the harmful toxins and fungus freed by dust mite feces that trigger respiratory allergies.
4. How does Airfree eliminate fungi?
As mentioned before, Airfree eliminates airborne microorganisms included fungi and spores. By eliminating spores new colonies are unlikely to develop, representing less future airborne spores.
5. How does Airfree® destroy viruses?
Those microscopic microorganisms are easily eliminated inside Airfree’s ceramic core capillaries. The temperature inside of Aifree’s capillaries is much higher than required to incinerate them. Airfree® is your greatest ally in respiratory disease prevention.
6. Does Airfree reduce tobacco smell?
Yes, Airfree reduces any kind of organic smell in the ambience including tobacco.
7. Does Airfree release any gas or chemical product?
No. Airfree’s sterilisation process is natural. Please check our website for conclusive tests regarding particles and ozone.
8. Does Airfree heat up a room?
No. Airfree does not noticeable increase room temperature. To have an idea 2 Airfrees plugged in the same room will contribute as much heat as the presence of one adult in that same room.
9. Does Airfree provoke any change in room’s the relative humidity?
10. Does Airfree need filter replacement?
11. Does Airfree consume a lot of energy?
No. Airfree’s consumption is just 52 Watts for P150, 50 Watts for P125, 48 Watts for P80, 45 Watts for P60, 50 Watts for E125, 48 Watts for E80 , 45 Watts for E60 and 40 Watts for E40.
12. Where do the microorganisms go after they are destroyed?
As all living organisms, microorganisms and their products are basically composed of carbon, oxygen and nitrogen. Since Airfree® reaches approx. 200º C, all the components are supposed to suffer a combustion process, which liberates carbon dioxide (the same product released by our respiration) and water. Some carbon (or ashes) may remain in the process. If there is some residual allergen left, we might consider that they suffer denaturation, a process resulting in loss of conformation and function. It should be noted that we are talking about reactions that occur in a microscopic level, so all these processes or by-products won’t be perceived. In this case, there is no need to worry about maintenance.
